      If we spent £50mill on Sanchez, we’d have spent £90mill on 2 players in the final year of their contract, (half year for one of them). No thanks, would rather just try our chances with Sanchez on a free if anything. Bigger priorities needed.

      £90 million on Lemar or £50 million in Sanchez? Given the option which would you take? No brainier for me. Unfortunately I suspect it's City or PSG for Sanchez come the end of the season for a no doubt ludicrous weekly salary package. But a big bid for Sanchez now could steal a march on his signature and show some intent on our part. It would be aggressive but I think that's what's needed.

      However, I have a feeling we don't bring anyone in and wait till the summer.

      Same feeling Scott, I think Klopp will wait it out till the summer then invest.

      Sanchez is a very good player, but I still wouldn’t go for that and Lemar. 50mill is a lot of money for a player who can easily start throwing his toys out the pram. I’d still rather that 50mill put towards a top class keeper, I think that would be of bigger need than Sanchez at 50mill. Perhaps more like 25mill for Sanchez and I’d say go for it.

      No that would be insane, or do you think he has deliberately weakened our team and lessened our chances of a top 4 and any chance in CL.
      I think someone is already lined up, it may not be Mahrez but it will be someone.

      Hmm, we saw in the summer with VVD. We couldn’t get him then so didn’t bother with an alternative and waited until the winter. Would Klopp do that kind of thing again with a Coutinho replacement if his main target isn’t available until the summer? Either way, Coutinho has left a big hole that need to be filled. I just hope it’s done with the right player. We can’t have another Suarez to Balotelli type situation.

      Don't forget Klopp places a lot of faith in coaching. People scratching their heads at our failure to move out players like Migs and Lovren but the manger puts a lot of trust in his ability to improve the team on the training ground. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Ox sees more playing time, young Woodburn makes a contribution and Klopp waits until the summer to get the player he wants.

      To be honest I don't really want us to panic buy or waste the money as was the case when Suarez was sold. But I'd have rather that we simply didn't sell our best player mid-season as well.

      Something is afoot......Mahrez could be a decoy........

      My spidey senses are tingling 🧐

      The return of a legend.... An icon.

      Sure some people in the press gave him a rough time but there is no doubt the Kop wants to sing his name once more.

      Yes I'm talking about Stewart Downing.

      I think it would be odd for us to contact Leicester and say we have no interest in signing hin.

      I believe we have made contact to sign him.

      I want this.... A proven PL player who wont break the bank. We can use 1/3 of the Phil money and still have more to splurge. Mahrez, a DM, and a good keeper to accompany VVD and Kieta would be fine by me.

      Yep. Stupid rumour.

      "Hi, just giving you guys a phone to let you know we won't be looking to buy Mahrez"

      Ridiculous but transfer talk just gets sillier and sillier by the year.

      How long does Mahrez have left on his contract?

      Well I still think we can prise him away form Leicester for a decent amount, they can't exactly be a cash rich club.

      A great signing this would be, looks like the reports from French BeIN were false. Most reporters close to Liverpool are saying we are not interested and I feel they are right.

      Hope that something is going on here though, would love him.
